The Lady of the village

Perawan Desa

Directed by Frank Rorimpandey
Indonesia, 1978


The film is a “reconstruction” of the real event of Sum Kuning’s rape that happened 10 years before, and sums up the lack of justice in the courts. Sumirah, raped by four vandals on her way home, is brainwashed to confess to the court something even more ridiculous than the real case.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
